Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
Show & Tell
Some of the ribbon winners from our 2013 Quilt Show. Click on the photo to see a larger view.
Please join us at 7:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church on 6th & Nebraska for our August 11th Guild Meeting.
The program will feature one of our Guild members, Barbara Phillips, giving us tips and techniques for machine quilting on our home sewing machines. You won't want to miss her presentation. We'll also be talking about the theme for our 2015 Quilt Show, as well as our choice of "Winter Wonderland" for the theme for our 2014 Festival of Trees Christmas tree. We would like another greeter and a Welcome person for the August meeting, so please consider volunteering if you can come to the meeting a little earlier than usual.
We'll see you there!
It's potluck time again, so that means our July meeting will start at 6:30 pm instead of 7:00. Please check the current newsletter to find out the details about the potluck and the president's challenge "Life's A Beach".
Please note that the correct food suggestion for the potluck is as follows: If your last name starts with A thru J, bring dessert; last names K thru R, bring a main dish; and last names S thru Z, bring a salad.
Please also mark your calendars for the August 9th "Sweat Shop" where guild members will make quilts for the Cancer Center. We promise you'll have fun and you don't actually have to sweat if you don't want to! See the newsletter for details, or contact June DeVries if you have questions.
We'll see you soon.
Please join us at our June 9th Guild meeting
at First Presbyterian Church 6th & Nebraska at 7:00 pm.
You'll be happy you worked your way through the downtown road construction because we have a special program featuring Roxanne O'Hare, owner of the Cosmic Cow quilt shops in Lincoln and Seward, NE. She'll be bringing a trunk show, as well as fabric to sell, so don't miss out!
Also, try to attend the Omaha Quilt Guild's show from June 19-21. Visit their website at: www.omahaquiltersguild.org for the place and times.
See the current newsletter for other information about the Guild, and we'll see you on June 9th.
